Could Pearl Harbor be considered a "terror attack"?

I'm curious what you'd be referring to unless you do mean Vietnam...tenuously to be described as 'terrorism' - as unfortunate as I believe that to be.

Vietnam was a very poor attempt at humour, Air India seems to be the one.

I appreciated your irony

I am wondering if either AcrobatMan is making a hidden point here, or if this site I checked is missing some events. Air India is in the lead though.

Well ..with that list..most people will get it..

As A_Wanderer got it.

So the answer is

23 Jun 1985 mid-air bombing of Air India flight off Ireland, and attempted bombing of second flight in Canada 331 4

The fatalities were around 330 .. could have been double of that..
was prevented..

No hidden point.. I was just checking if people are aware of terrorism happening at other places..
